The Campaign for the Presidency - Common Sense and a Sense of Humor

How easily we are losing perspective, getting into fights about he or she is isn't qualified; how terror lurks; how the system is rigged against "us".  All could be true, but maybe not.  How do you keep an even keel, look into the useful stuff behind the shouting?

The key, it seems to me, is to slake the thirst by honoring the screamers and then be guided by a sense of humor. Know the truth and it shall make you laugh; not make you passive and indifferent, but wiser.  Clive James makes the point better than i.

"Common sense and a sense of humor are the same thing, moving at different speeds.  A sense of humor is just common sense, dancing.  Those who lack humor are without judgment and to be trusted with nothing.”

Clive James
